Crystals and Pearls

 

An incredibly busy July features this, a beautiful, elegant and supremely classy wedding at One Whitehall in the heart of Westminster

Carla and David are a gorgeous couple who had very strong ideas about the look they wanted for their wedding day and with the aid of the fabulous photographic skills of Fiona Kelly, I’m now very proud to be able to show you what we created for them

Carla’s initial brief was Gatsby … just that and we got it straight away! Elegant and refined with ivory flowers throughout, antique silver tea lights, pearls and crystal rose bowls – what more could a girl want. Except a beautiful floaty dress, sparkly Jimmy Choos and glorious weather … and we had those too! We filled the crystal bowls with Stocks, Hydrangea and Garden Roses whose fragrance filled both the Ceremony and Reception rooms and we dressed the tables with candles, tea lights and strings of pearls

We enjoyed working on this wedding very much and added another happy couple to our portfolio …

‘Thank you very much – for the beautiful flowers and the preparation! We had a lovely day and it was just the way we had imagined. We had so many comments from the guests about the venue, the flowers … Carla and David x

Come and get your Christmas craft on

Now that the weather is turning colder #shame, and the leaves are getting decidedly browner #nice, it is time to start thinking about the big C….yep Christmas is just around the corner and if you are the crafty creative type you are in for a treat this year. Come and join me at our studio in Battersea where we will be running a series of wreath-making workshops

The session will address wiring techniques, examples of finished wreaths and the various styles that can be achieved using a variety of foliage, fir cones, cinnamon, whole oranges or apples. Materials will be provided and I will provide step-by-step demonstrations, as well as personal tuition to produce the perfect, truly unique holiday wreath for your door
Refreshments and morning pastries will be provided and participants will of course be able to take their work home with them to proudly display to friends and family. The wreaths should last right up until Christmas

The workshops, running on Sunday 3rd, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December,** from 10.30-12.30pm, cost £60 per person and are based in our creative home at the New New Covent Garden Flower Market, in all its twinkling and festive glory, a truly magical place! They would make a unique seasonal hen party or just a fun day out with friends and family

To book your place on our wreath-making workshop, or enquire about other workshops please contact Liz on liz@blueskyflowers.co.uk or call 07973 601 045

These wreaths were made by some lovely ladies at a previous workshop
